• Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
    F, Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had successful surgery to correct a groin strain on Tuesday.

    MKG has really struggled the past few seasons and has seen his once intriguing stock all but disappear. MKG has a $13 million player option decision to make this summer, but it would be shocking if he declined as there is little reason to believe he could top that mark on the open market.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham is averaging 19.1 points, 7.8 assists and 3.7 threes per game in his breakout sophomore season and he's starting to create buzz as a Most Improved Player award candidate.

    Graham is shooting 42 percent from three after tripling his attempts from behind the arc this season, joining the upper echelon of the league's sharpshooters at the ripe age of 24. He's not only an efficient scorer, but he's effectively raising the production of the Hornets' entire lineup when he's on the floor, adding nearly 20 points per game off of assists to his teammates. It's no surprise that he's jumped ahead in the MIP discussion. We've said it here before, but Graham is not a sell high player and congratulations are in order if you plucked him off the wire during that first week.

  • Donovan Mitchell
    SG, Utah Jazz

    Donovan Mitchell scored 22 points with four rebounds, three assists and seven turnovers in a 126-112 blowout victory over the Grizzlies.

    The turnovers were the one blemish on this game for Mitchell. He is sitting inside the top-30 and should stay within that range with potential to climb into the top-20.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Bojan Bogdanovic dropped 19 points on Saturday while shooting 5-of-13 from the field, 2-of-6 from deep and 7-of-7 from the line.

    Bogdanovic continues to roll, producing top-60 value with solid contributions in points, threes and free throw percentage.

  • Rudy Gobert
    C, Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert double-doubled with 19 points (8-of-9 from the field) and 11 boards on Saturday.

    Gobert was almost perfect from the floor and added five assists, but he failed to record a block. Gobert is top-40 on the season and could get back to second-round value if his blocks increase slightly.

  • Joe Ingles
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Joe Ingles double-doubled with 12 points, 10 assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes on Saturday.

    Ingles saw extra ball handling opportunity with Mike Conley (left hamstring tightness) sitting out, and he had a great connection with Rudy Gobert (19 points and 11 rebounds in 31 minutes). Ingles is still outside the top-150 in 9-cat rankings but keep an eye on him in case he can get some momentum.

  • Emmanuel Mudiay
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Emmanuel Mudiay scored 11 points with seven assists and two threes in 22 minutes on Saturday.

    Mudiay had extra opportunity with Mike Conley (left hamstring tightness) sidelined. Mudiay can be streamed for assists when Mike Conley or Donovan Mitchell are out, but he should be left on the waiver wire when the Jazz are at full strength.

  • Jeff Green
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Jeff Green drained five 3-pointers on his way to scoring 19 points, shooting 7-of-9 from the floor and 5-of-6 from behind the line in 26 minutes.

    Green joined the party tonight as the Jazz blew out the Grizzlies 126-112. Green can be a boom-or-bust streamer for points and threes but is too inconsistent to rely on. He should be left on the waiver wire.

  • Tyus Jones
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Tyus Jones scored nine points with seven assists and three steals in 28 minutes on Saturday.

    Jones is worth rostering in standard leagues while Ja Morant (back) is week-to-week for his contributions in assists and steals.

  • Jaren Jackson Jr.
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jaren Jackson Jr. scored a team-high 26 points on Saturday to go with four rebounds, one block and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    JJJ has shown the ability to put up these scoring outbursts but isn't doing it consistently. Jackson Jr. is hovering around top-100 value but will need to stay out of foul trouble and be more consistent to reach his ADP. He is a buy-low target that could blow up late in the season.

  • Dillon Brooks
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Dillon Brooks (shoulder) started on Saturday and scored 10 points with two steals in 23 minutes.

    Brooks was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury but was able to play through it. Brooks is a late-round value in standard leagues and will have a boost in in the short term with Ja Morant (back) week-to-week.
